In 2006, Kate Beckinsale purchased a Cape Cod style home in the upscale neighborhood of Brentwood in Los Angeles, California for $3.6 million. Contrary to the typical Hollywood approach to real estate with frequent relocations, the action film star has called Brentwood home for the past 15 years. However, now that her daughter, 22-year-old Lily Mo Sheen, is reportedly content living in Manhattan, Beckinsale is prepared to bid farewell to her humble California abode. She has recently listed her former Brentwood property for a price of $3.995 million. Considering the competitive state of Los Angeles real estate market, a mere increase from $3.6 million to $3.995 million over the course of 15 years is a generous listing.
Built in 1965, the charming yet elegant Brentwood home spans 3,603 square feet and includes four bedrooms and 5.5 baths. The Cape Cod inspired aesthetic is encapsulated in decorative details of numerous fireplaces, French doors, and wainscoting. Stepping inside, the family room offers comfortable couch seating, a cozy fireplace, and five sets of French doors for fresh air and natural sunlight. The spacious kitchen is equipped with two islands, surrounding marble top counters, and plentiful cabinetry. Further into the home, the office area presents a second lofted level with an exceptional bookcase and ladder for access. Upstairs, the spacious master suite features a fireplace, exposed wooden beams, enormous walk in closet, and luxurious bathroom with his and her sinks, a deep bathtub, and skylit shower. The interior also offers a full bar set up leading outside to the exterior space. The serene, wooded backyard offers lush greenery and space for entertaining with outdoor seating and a stone fireplace. A unique perk of the endearing exterior is a charming footbridge that leads to a spa tub and outdoor shower on a hill above the home.
